Cre8tive Mindset Training to Implement Along Your “Journey”.
You may not have realized this yet, but the journey, the challenges, and the obstacles all lead you to a destination. It’s called “success” if you are lucky enough to manage to endure the process. For those less cre8tive folks, it’s just called “life”. But I need not remind you that you are not like the average person, you’ve decided to believe in your greatness and take control.
For the longest time, I thought success meant that you had a good-paying job. You know, a job that allows you to afford a fancy house, drive an expensive car and wear designer clothes. Even when I think back to graduating High School, I figured the next steps were simple. Go to college. Graduate and get that job, get married have kids. Then be the best damn soccer Mom and have the cool neighborhood house where everyone comes for barbecues each weekend and lived happily ever after.
Needless to say, that was not and is not my actual reality.
I did manage to check a few of those boxes, like be the best damn mom and graduate from college and get a job. And even on occasion, I did have the cool neighborhood house where everyone came to hang out on the weekends. So to say that’s NOT a success is totally up to how you see the glass or understand the journey.
For example. This is my recording studio. Fancy right? :)
It's all intentional and your results are truly up to you. This is why it's not completely about the journey towards your specific destination. It's about the lifestyle changes that you learn along the way, the habits and routines, and lessons. That is what will make and shape and mold you into someone who is capable to be and do great things.
Going above and beyond just to prove that you’ve made to the destination is fine and all, but happens when you get there? Do you automatically know what to do? Or who to be? Just because you get to the destination, doesn’t mean that you are prepared and can fulfill your responsibility once you’ve arrived. Meaning it’s cool to check all your boxes off in a perfect little row, but it’s totally ok to get cre8tive along the way too!
Life is about what you make with what you have when you have it. And you should always be focusing on who you are becoming along the way.
One of the biggest challenges that I found in my journey is the fact that people tend to hide the “how-to” can only show you the results. Here's what I mean by that.
Perhaps you're like me, and you jump on every webinar you can, you spend hours and hours researching and learning and growing from the quote on quote free content because you can not pay for a coach or afford any of their course and products. That's why it's important for me to provide as much insight into the things that you can do and work on today, to control your emotions and actions along the way to your destination. Here's what I mean by that. I can tell you to control your emotions, save your money, prepare your content, and go be great. But if I don't tell you specifically how to control your emotions, why you need to control your emotions, and I fail to give you the framework. Then it is just a waste of time.
So raise your hand if you have sat in and a webinar or attended a workshop that was awesome. You got so much value from it and you were pumped up and ready to implement all of the information that was provided. Seriously, raise your hand. I know this is a blog post but I can see you shaking your head in agreement, so thank you. We all have been there.
Most of us have and some have even paid tons of money to get all that information only to leave pumped up and ready, but as soon as you sit down at your desk, what happens? Poof! You have no idea where to begin. This is why it's important to be creative during this time. And I've got four affirmations that will allow you to push forward and make the time 2 get your mindset prepared for action.
Cre8tive Mindset training Tips to Implement Along Your “Journey”.
You can do it!
The first creative thinking process that I want you to work on is overcoming fear. The fear of what they’ll say, what’ they’ll think, and if you can do it. Start making it a point to do that big scary thing whenever you feel the fear sneaking in and out telling you you can't. That is a trigger that means you have to do it. And most importantly you have to know and believe that you can.
You are worthy!
Make sure you understand your worth. Trust and know that your expertise and your added experience give you the validation to teach what you know. This is why most people fall into the Trap of imitating everything that everyone else is doing and not staying true to themselves. You don't have to settle for what everyone else is doing. BE YOU! Be cre8tive and brave enough to stand out and not just fit in. You just have to learn to ride your own wave. And know that you deserve to ride just as high and see the same success as everyone else.
You will win!
Get it together friend. It’s time for some serious emotional control. You may have to get Super Creative about this challenge. Because emotions are what we are full of. We are human beings and it's really hard to not have emotions. About everything. But when you are trying to make a change in your life and your future, you have to learn to take everything as it comes. This means learning to listen, prepare, relate, and react. The way that you respond to how things happen and what the outcomes are is totally up to you. You have total control of one thing, and that’s YOU. So you have to be the CEO and understand where your emotions are and are not needed and where your leadership and expertise should take the lead.
You are ready!
You are not what you think. It's so easy to get distracted by negative thoughts and old habits that creep in. But don't allow your thought process to revert backward. Use positive affirmations daily journaling and make sure that every day you walk and talk and live as the CEO of your life and your business. You are in total control and no matter who or what you used to be and do change can come. But it's up to you to take action and ensure that you're holding yourself accountable for changing and staying changed. Don't worry about the past because a new day is coming.
I bet you didn’t realize the importance of controlling and understanding your MIND is way more important than the actual process of running a business or making a change in your life. It’s all in your mind. Literally.
